    VIS-OCT needs stable, versatile light sources

    Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is the gold standard for noninvasive retinal imaging, enabling ophthalmologists to diagnose and treat multiple ocular diseases. Compared to traditional OCT, which uses near-infrared (NIR) wavelengths of light, visible-light OCT (VIS-OCT) offers superior spatial resolution and novel functional imaging capabilities. VIS-OCT provides the most accurate means for measuring retinal oxygen saturation, a key biomarker for understanding changes in tissue metabolism associated with the pathology of various retinal diseases. Traditional OCT has dominated ophthalmic diagnostics for the past 30 years. Thanks to investment in and development of key OCT components, there is an opportunity to accelerate adoption ...
